All site location information, water parameters, sediment physical properties, grain size, radiochemistry, and shear vane data for the 2015 sampling trip are available for download as a zipped folder containing a Microsoft Excel (.xlsx) file, a comma separated values (.csv) file, and Metadata in Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGCD) format from the data table below. Spreadsheets in this report were created in Microsoft Office and can be viewed using the free Microsoft Excel Viewer. Collections of X-radiographs of the marsh cores and down-core bulk density, organic matter, grain size, and 210Pb activity graphs can be downloaded as a zipped Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) file. Portable Document Format (PDF) files of field, crew, and equipment logs for the 2015 sampling trip can be found in USGS Data Series 1046 (Ellis and others, 2017) and viewed using the free software Adobe Acrobat Reader (http://get.adobe.com/reader). All maps in this report were created in ESRI ArcGIS (ver. 10.0.2) and saved as a JPEG file.
